I have just tried this myself and does not work with the creator pro i have (2015 model), the shim completely misses the switch and causes the build plate to drive up into the PCB, fortunately, no damage.

That notch doesn't work with my creator pro either.. it misses the switch and the shim jams up against the circuit board of the switch. Did anyone find a solution?

I tried this on my Flashforge Creator Pro. The recesses do not match the pattern of screws on the bed assembly and the cut -out on the front edge means the shim misses the z-switch entirely. I've got a fairly recent model, maybe they changed how it's put together but I'm afraid this did not work for me.

Same here....Misses the Z Switch and a hair to wide....

Thanks! Used your 5mm version for my 3/16" piece of glass and it worked great. No modification needed on my PowerSpec 3d Pro

Made 3mm version, didn't work well - notch in the middle is too large so the z-limit switch doesn't get tripped properly; also side hooks for posts are a hair too wide, so it bows a little in the middle.

Did one with the Z axis scaled up to 6.8mm to match the thickness of my borosilicate glass. Printed flawlessly. and went in perfectly. Will mount the glass later this weekend and post a followup.

Hi, wondered if you could do me a favor.

I've got a Microcenter flavor of a Creator Forge pro, and where you have the notch in the middle (assuming for the screws) is right where my microwsitch is. can you please make me a 3mm version without the notch.

A 4mm version would also be awesome.

Much thanks.

I assume you mean to fill up the centre area? I'll let you know one I have the time to get around to it. Possibly this weekend.
